White Striker Charter specializes in fishing for Trout on the world-famous Lake Taupo in New Zealand. Captain Richard Staines has over three decades of charter experience on Lake Taupo and knows about everything that makes for a fun and productive fishing trip. He is happy to welcome both beginners and more experienced anglers aboard.
You will be fishing on a 32’ Genesis cruiser that’s outfitted with a 250 HP Hyundai engine and has plenty of space for up to eight anglers to fish in comfort. Apart from all the necessary safety and navigation gear, the boat has a private head, full kitchen facilities, and a fridge/freezer as well. The boat is designed to be suited for fishing in all weather conditions, so feel free to book at any time you like.
Lake Taupo is heaven for Trout fishing, and what better way to do it than with Taupo’s most experienced charter operator. Jigging and trolling with downriggers are the main techniques used by Captain Richard to get you on the fish. Three-hour trips are the standard fare when it comes to fishing Lake Taupo, but longer trips can also be arranged.
The price of a trip includes rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as the cleaning and bagging of your catch after the trip. 24-hour fishing licenses can be bought from the captain (Adults $20.00 Children $4.50) or you can bring your own. Take along a pair of polarized sunglasses and some snacks if you’re so inclined and the adventure can begin.
